They spent last season playing "Where's Sauron?"; it would be an extremely bad move to try it again just from a crass marketing standpoint, let alone a writing one.

I have some hope that season two will attempt to correct for some of seasons one's flaws, though I remain skeptical. At the very least, I'll watch so I can be mad at it for the right reasons instead of whatever vitriol gets spewed by the people who're using it as a cover for real-world bigotry. That drives me up the wall more than anything the show has done!
